Simple

Last week I found this simple apron pattern; how perfect, one for mom and one for daughter.


Each calls for very little fabric; in fact, less than a yard.

I made this one in a child's size from a fat quarter, and used the solid blue for waistband, ties and bias trim. I really like it; makes me think of Alice in Wonderland.

Most apron patterns call for 1/4" double fold bias tape and sometimes it's hard to find the right color. Recently I got a new 1/2" bias tape maker; now I can make my own 1/4" double fold tape to match colors.

Connecting Threads, an online fabric site, has a terrific sale right now; maybe it's a good time to gift myself with supplies for making aprons since I plan to use this pattern a lot.

  2. Forgive me - I am almost envious of your talent
    But then where would I have the time.
    On the computer from 5 to 7 in the morning, household chores, bird feeders fed, Miss Callie seen to sometimes an errand.
    All I know is I never finish all I want to in a day and I do not sew :) But then there are only one set of 3 score 10 hands - maybe that is the answer or I clean too much :)
